Crazy Horse Paris presents its « Muses » at the Petit Palais
Paris, September 13th, 2016 – Crazy Horse Paris is proud and happy to announce that it has accepted the invitation of Jean de Loisy, artistic director of Nuit Blanche and president of the Palais de Tokyo, to participate in the 2016 edition of Nuit Blanche. This year’s theme of the popular night-time event: crossings over and, in particular, that of the Seine river and therefore, its bridges.
Held every year since 2002 on the first Saturday in October, the city of Paris organizes this “Sleepless Night”, in french Nuit Blanche. This year’s edition will be held on Saturday, October 1st, from 7 p.m. ‘til dawn. It is a popular and festive event, art taking center stage in the city, pervading public parks and iconic Parisian monuments and buildings.
This year, Nuit Blanche will provide the opportunity to discover the city differently with an itinerary designed such a symbolic cartography, inviting the visitor to participate in a lover’s quest along the Seine, from town hall to the Île aux Cygnes and up to the city of tomorrow, the Grand Paris. Nuit Blanche’s leitmotiv, personified by Poliphilo, main character of a 15th century illustrated Italian novel, in which he pursues his love, Polia, in his dreams, only to sadly awaken when he, at long last, manages to conquer her heart. Not unlike him, visitors will be invited to cross dreamlike landscapes, going through inner change and transformation in the process.
THE CRAZY HORSE PARIS’ MUSES AT THE PETIT PALAIS
In the Petit Palais gardens, a spellbinding encounter soothes Poliphilo’s heart. Just as in numerous passages in the novel, nymphs help our hero by guiding and enthralling him. A flash of light, symbolizing the frontier between where the real world ends and dreams begin, greets visitors as they enter the garden. They discover a magical and bewitching world laid out in lavish 19th century scenery.
Hidden behind peristyle columns, Crazy Horse Paris nymphs seem to have taken shelter in this enchanting place. In the middle of the central pool, their vaporous robes sway gently and they whisper delicately into the visitors’ ears.
